The Long War is easily the most famous modification for XCOM: Enemy Unknown and might be one of the most popular modifications ever made. The creators of that mod have founded their own studio, Long War Studios, and are working on something new.
The game they’re making, Terra Invicta, sounds a good bit more cerebral than the tactical firefight fare of XCOM though they share the same basic concept:
“An alien force has arrived in the far reaches of Solar System and begun probing Earth’s defenses and building an invasion fleet. The player must assemble a council of scientists, politicians, military leaders and operatives who can unite Earth’s squabbling nations with the ultimate goal of taking the fight to the aliens in the high ground of outer space.”
The game is listed as in “Pre-Kickstarter development”, suggesting that we’ll see a crowdfunding campaign for Terra Invicta soon.[Source: PC Gamer]
